Join us for a tour of the famous Parkes Observatory.
Astronomers use the Parkes radio telescope to measure the radio energy produced naturally by objects in the universe such as stars, galaxies and clouds of dust and gas. Occasionally the Parkes telescope will assist space exploration missions by acting as a receiving station to receive radio transmissions from space craft but the main focus remains astronomy.
